Seems possible to do a similar thing without even
having a separate top -- just drills and/or chisel
into the area behind the controls from the routed
area beneath the pickguard. This is what I thought
you might do before seeing your solution.
Glad to see you in as well Glenn!
Chambering has always been part of the plan. More for weight reduction than the access for the controls. But yeah, it could be done like you describe.
See you in the fray...
